SHE may have just graduated, but Toolooa student Sharrna Parter was not about to miss yesterday's birthing ceremony.

Sharrna was one of many senior students who was heavily involved in bringing the Yarning Circle to fruition.

Students assisted with the design, landscaping and painting of the circle.

Sharrna said the circle would bring culture into the school.

"It's a place for community members and students to be open and themselves, where they can connect with each other without being judged," she said.

The space would be used by many classes.

"It will be great to get outside of the classroom," she said.

"Our school has always respected the Gooreng Gooreng people as something great."
